An issue that should not be ignored

When we make the teeth whiter than the natural state, we call it “bleaching”. But normal teeth whitening, which leads to the return of the teeth to their original color, is called teeth whitening. Therefore, using a whitening toothpaste can also help this process. But to perform bleaching, special bleaching materials are needed, and this process cannot be done with a normal bleach.


Bleaching is a method to whiten teeth and beautify the smile, which has many fans these days.

Due to the passage of time and by eating certain foods and smoking, the teeth change color and the pigment sticks to them. Therefore, treatment methods are needed to remove stains and whiten teeth.

Teeth bleaching is done by two methods: office bleaching and home bleaching.

The office bleaching method, which is performed in the dentist’s office, is stronger than home bleaching and has better results.

Teeth bleaching is done by the office bleaching method during 2-3 sessions and according to the following steps:

First, if necessary, teeth are scaled before bleaching.

In the second step, the gums are covered with a special material so that they are not damaged.

Then the special teeth whitening agent (hydrogen peroxide) which is like a gel is placed on the teeth for 15 to 30 minutes.

In the next step, in order to activate the whitening agent, the light of the light cure or laser device is shone on it so that the teeth whitening process is performed.

Teeth bleaching by home bleaching method:

_To perform this method which is done at home, first you have to go to the dentist’s office for a session to mold the teeth.

_ In the next step, according to the explanation given by the dentist, put the carbamide peroxide bleaching agent on the teeth with a special mold and let it stay for a few hours because the home bleaching agent is less concentrated and needs to stay on the teeth for a longer time for better results. .

The length of home bleaching treatment is usually two weeks, and each person can leave the substance on their teeth for 4 to 6 hours each time, according to the dentist’s advice, to get the necessary results.

Note that to perform bleaching in a standard way and to get better results, perform bleaching in dental offices and clinics.


Dental laminate is a type of dental veneer that is used to correct things such as color, shape and size of teeth.

In fact, dental laminates give you a smile and a beautiful face by covering the unevenness, fractures and excessive distance between the teeth.

Laminate steps:

To perform dental lamination, after examining the teeth by the dentist and receiving advice, the following steps are taken:

_ In the first stage, the teeth are trimmed to the required amount (usually between three tenths and one millimeter).

In the second step, tooth molding is done and the measured mold is sent to the laboratory for manufacturing. (This stage lasts between 2 and 4 weeks).

In the third step, the molds prepared with a special material are glued on the teeth.

_ In the fourth stage, the material with which the dental veneer is attached is activated with special light rays.

Note that the durability of laminate is between 7 and 15 years, depending on the material used, the method of execution, the skill of the dentist, the level of care, etc.

Composite veneer

Dental composite is one of the most common methods to correct the smile design and have a beautiful smile.

Composite veneer material is made of a paste-like material that is hardened by light waves with a certain wavelength and is used to fix tooth defects such as lip gaps, improper distance between teeth, color correction, etc.

Stages of composite implementation:

To put the composite material on the teeth, the dentist first cleans the teeth completely and removes scale if needed.

In the next step, the teeth are dried for better adhesion of the composite material.

In the final stage, special material (dental glue) is placed on the teeth and then the composite material is placed on it.

There are different types of composites, which include the following:

Hybrid composite

_ Micro hybrid

_Nano Hybrid

Dental veneer composites

Macrophilic composite

Microfil composite

The lifespan and durability of the composite depends on things like the material used to make the composite, the dentist’s skill in performing it, the type and material of the tooth, proper diet, how to care for and observe oral hygiene.

If the above things are followed well, the durability of composites can be between 5 and 10 years.

Note that the composite teeth should be brushed and flossed regularly so that the accumulation of bacteria and plaques does not cause bad breath and eventually the composite falls.
